Continuity mistake: As Schultz marches in with the Kraut platoon, he reports to Klink. As he goes to stand at attention and report, the new tunnel section he's over collapses, and he completely disappears into the hole. The camera goes to a close up on Klink, then back to the hole, and you see Schultz standing in the hole and it's only chest deep.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: After Shultz has been discredited, Klink is taking away the "badges of rank". When Klink goes to crush the monocle Shultz was wearing, he has his monocle on. After the shot cuts to a closeup of Shultz's monocle being crushed, and widens out, you see Klink's monocle is suddenly gone. It remains missing until Klink goes to the hat rack. The shot cuts from Klink, to Hogan and Shultz, then back, and the famous monocle is suddenly back, both without Klink stopping to take it off, or put it back on.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: Carter and Newkirk have just taken the escapees down the tree trunk to the tunnels. When they go to open it, they clear off the snow to open it. When the shot goes to a German soldier that was chasing them, the phony stump is suddenly covered over again. It would still have been visible, having just been exposed.Movie Nut
